1  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Re: Grub2 entry Pardus 2011 on: February 05, 2011, 00:53:36 AM
OK in reply to proposed modifications to my 40_custom, did those.
New issues.
However, I decided on two tests, to install Pardus on my hard drive sda

Code:
/root sda1
/usr /sda2
/var /sda3
/home /sda5
/swap /sda6

So during install process added xorg=safe
Anyway as far as initial install, really no issues smooth, fast, I think 10 minutes, anyway the issue is upon reboot

It simply does not load Pardus, it stays on sda and does nothing.

So if i cannot boot a fresh install where Pardus boot loader is selected, then this is another issue alltogether.

So at  this point I had to install Mint Linux back as it serves as my boot loader, I might wait till next 64 bit release of Pardus.

However I do have Pardus working on my other computer, a 32 bit AMD XP-2400+ unit..

Thanks for all the help, I've added bookmarks to my grub section.

Hi again did try earlier

Code:
resume=UUID=31bd2d6e [ ... etc.]

to

resume=/dev/sda6

It loaded stuff it could find with error, I'll be more specific tomorrow. Getting late I had a few Network issues and issues with another Workstation, suddenly 10 hours vanished. I do appreciate your knowledge base, it helps. I am also thinking of doing two other tests.
One install where my current Mint Linux, Pardus 64 bit and see how that works out. I am familiar with menu.lst and adding entries is easy.
Then another variation on my tests, install Sabayon Linux and see how it's boot loader works with Pardus.
Along the way I am sure more data will be collected.

I'll go through your new suggestions, and give you details on what I encounter.

Thanks again

Thanks for new modifications, I think we are getting closer.

My current 40_custom file

Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec tail -n +3 $0
echo "Adding Pardus" >&2
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.

menuentry "Pardus" {
set root=(hd0,7)
linux /boot/kernel-2.6.37 root=UUID=54636f7a-34b5-486f-a670-a095a22bd821 resume=UUID=31bd2d6e-4566-4cb9-aefd-2146ea41735f splash=silent quiet blacklist=nouveau
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.37
}

Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec tail -n +3 $0
echo "Adding Pardus" >&2
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.

menuentry "Pardus" {
set root=(hd0,msdos7)
linux /boot/kernel-2.6.37 root=UUID=54636f7a-34b5-486f-a670-a095a22bd821 resume=UUID=31bd2d6e-4566-4cb9-aefd-2146ea41735f splash=silent quiet blacklist=nouveau
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.37
}

I added note blacklist=nouveau because I had a HW detect hardware error

Next I get following error when attempting to load Pardus in both instances.

Resume: Could not stat the resume device file "UUID=31bd2d6e-4566-4cb9-aefd-2146ea41735f "
Please type in the full path name to try again or press Enter to boot the system:

Now note at this point I was looking at this current post, the original response from yourself kalwisti

your code :

Code:
title Pardus 2011
uuid 5b2d3d30-4195-477e-93c7-9a84c7a94928
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.37 root=UUID=5b2d3d30-4195-477e-93c7-9a84c7a94928
resume=/dev/sda6 splash quiet blacklist=nouveau
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.37

How would that be written within 40_custom, as above I tried it, had original errors.
Set root is not present above
I tried also set root=uuid(5b2d3d30-4195-477e-93c7-9a84c7a94928)

In all instances I did sudo update-grub
Thank you, awaiting your response.

Good Evening,

I tried the new modifications

my 40_custom reads now like this

Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec tail -n +3 $0
echo "Adding Pardus" >&2
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.

menuentry "Pardus" {

initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.37
}

did my

Note I did a Fresh Install using xorg=safe of Pardus 2011 64 bit, without boot loader

And I did a fresh install of Mint-Linux 10.00 Isadora 64 bit, which serves as bootloader for all OS on my two hard drives.

Also I did

Thank you for your reply, tried it no success, same error.
Other option, install Pardus use it's boot-loader and edit menu.lst accordingly.
May well try that later today..
Thanks again..
6  Assistance / Installing Pardus / Grub2 entry Pardus 2011 on: January 31, 2011, 07:36:11 AM
Good Morning,

I've installed Pardus 2011 64 bit on some partitions, I am using Mint Linux 10.00 Isadora 64 bit Grub2 as bootloader.
Issue I get when I select Pardus from my selection
Code:
error : unknown command 'kernel'
error : you need to load the kernel first
Press any key to continue

So I've created 40_custom /etc/grub.d/40_custom
Code:
#!/bin/sh
exec tail -n +3 $0
echo "Adding Pardus" >&2
# This file provides an easy way to add custom menu entries.  Simply type the
# menu entries you want to add after this comment.  Be careful not to change
# the 'exec tail' line above.

menuentry "Pardus" {
set root=(hd0,6)
kernel /boot/kernel-2.6.37 splash=silent quiet vga=0x31a
initrd /boot/initramfs-2.6.37
}


My partition is sda7, I updated update-grub, it shows Pardus. Did my os-probe, all is fine.

I am using Nvidia video card.

Note when I installed Pardus I had occasional issues with Mouse freezing when I adjusted date and time, and started over. However I did succeed in Installing it in safe mode.

Also note when I chose my partitions /usr was not available in drop-down menu. I manually created it /usr and it works, I also use /var  along with / and /home.

Right now the issue is I cannot boot Pardus. I've done this before adding an entry. That's why I am writing in forum.

Note I did install Pardus on a 32 bit PC, and used it as boot loader after modifying menu.lst, no issues.

Thank you in advance for your response.

Quote from: "cartman"
... 64bit mode. Its on the roadmap. About Python, our init system is written in Python...

It's nice to hear 64bit Pardus is on the road map. I'm eager to try it when it's done.
Just for curiosity, what is preventing Pardus from compiling 64bit, even without optimization? Is it something related to init system? Almost every package compiles 64bit. Is it possible to try 64bit with some flags?
I don't know how pisi works, but I guess it can compile from source like portage on gentoo. I know Pardus does not depend on Gentoo anymore.
Also I wonder if Pardus is a binary or source distro?


I second that, I tried Pardus, it's quick, I'd love a 64-bit version, then I would concentrate more on this distribution, in Canada, 64-bit is standard,
and becoming the only choice, 32 bits are low-end in cost, and fewer than just 2 years ago. Note I currently run, EMT-64 Intel 3.00 Ghz Dual Core,
I use OpenSUSE, Fedora, Mepis (rc2), Ubuntu, Sidux, all 64 bits.

Thanks for an oppurtunity to post on this topic.
